Step 1: make a reservation for brunch at restaurant that would normally be packed
(in this case, Charlie Palmers at Bloomingdales)
Step 2: study your options at the unlimited Bloody Mary bar. (Making your friends pose for the picture is optional, but encouraged)
Step 3: make a ridiculous Bloody Mary containing beef jerky, artichoke hearts, a pickle, and lettuce wrapped bacon. Then decide your next BM will be completely different
There was also food involved in this extravaganza. But I would go back just for the Bloody Mary bar.
Fine, because I'm sure you're just dying to know, I had the grits appetizer (I basically licked the bowl clean) and the eggs benedict which I only ate 1/2 of because of the aforementioned Bloody Marys. Oh, and I got dessert for turning another year older and remembering to include that note when I made the reservation.
